The Fab Lab House has become in a popular experience at the "Villa Solar", and the visitors started to put names on it and compare it to other things.
If the twentieth century championed the premise that ‘form follows function’, in the 21st century ‘form follows energy.’ The house is no longer a machine but an organism to be inhabited.
The Fab Lab House uses the resources of its environment — sun, water and wind — to create a microclimate that passively optimizes the basic conditions of habitability.
A house is like a tree that captures energy with its solar ‘leaves’ and sends it down to its roots, where is stored, shared, or returned to the house to produce the fruit of electricity.
The house’s control system is designed to provide detailed real-time monitoring of its behavior and its interaction with the environment, creating historical profiles and sharing these socially.
Fab Lab House consortium produces and sells solar houses from 45.000€ + taxes. You can configure your house from different types of needs: Hut (12m2), Refuge (24m2), Studio (36m2), House (60+60m2), Villa (96 + 96m2).
A team comprising over 25 different nationalities.
